Wabash College Rep Connects with Romanian Students in Bucharest

Wabash College representative James Quill (Assistant Director of International Admissions) was back in Bucharest this week to connect, once again, with Romanian high school students.
The FEAC-EducationUSA adviser accompanied our guest to three top high schools in Bucharest - “Saint Sava” National College, “I. L. Caragiale” National College, and “Gheorghe Şincai” National College -, where an average 100 students (mainly 10th and 11th graders) gathered to hear the presentations, eager to learn more about study opportunities at Wabash and the path to studying in the U.S.
On November 7, James delivered an engaging presentation at FEAC on the unique community at Wabash, one of the few remaining all-men’s colleges in the U.S., and liberal arts colleges in general. The attendees had a chance to learn more about the Wabash community, special programs on offer, its solid alumni network, and the generous financial aid available for international applicants.
We took the opportunity to tell students a few words about the Fulbright Educational Advising Center and the newly launched competition for the EducationUSA Opportunity Funds program.

Andreea Voina, a recent Fulbright Student alumna in the field of Political Communication at the University of Georgia, defended her Ph.D. thesis on October 31st, and was awarded "Summa cum laude" based on a thesis elaborated during the research program in the United States. Her pioneering thesis focuses on women's representation and discourse in Romania and the United States, and draws a comparison between the two countries' dynamics in terms of women's legislative representation and campaign rhetoric. Andreea defended her thesis at Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, in front of a committee presided by Prof. Delia Balas from FSPAC (UBB). The committee also included thesis advisor Prof. Sandu Frunza (UBB), and referees Assoc. Prof. Oana Baluta (UB), Prof. Vasile Dancu (UB), and Prof. Ioan Hosu (UBB). 

Prof. Tudor Vlad from the University of Georgia, Andreea's academic advisor during her Fulbright program, was also present at the event, and had an intervention on her activity in the USA. Prof. Tudor Vlad, Director of the James M. Cox Jr. International Center for Journalism and Mass Communication Training and Research, was pivotal to Andreea's intellectual development and the development of her thesis, by overseeing the research process, helping her network with experts in the field, and helping her refine her critical thinking skills during her Fulbright grant in particular.
